Having root-level access to a server means that you'll be able to view and change any file on it, including important system files. You can also set up software which can update particular settings on the server during the process, so that the installation is possible only if you're signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over your machine at any time and you will be able to do anything you'd like. You may also generate various other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, based on what you require them for - day-to-day tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it's generally recommended to employ the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that you can do using other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect with the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers

When you order a VPS servers from us, you will have full root-level access in three cases - if the server comes with no website hosting Control Panel at all, or if you select cPanel or DirectAdmin during the order process. In the first case, you'll be able to update any part of the system using a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you'll still be able to use SSH in order to connect and to make changes, however you'll also have a graphical interface at your disposal to control your online content and almost all the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages an excellent choice in case you need to run any software which you cannot install in a regular shared hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you'll be able to connect by way of SSH and to manage the content on the hosting server, but the root access privileges will be more limited.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

In case you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our plans you will choose during the signup process. The same is valid if you decide not to install a Control Panel at all. All our servers will provide you with the option to run both really resource-demanding apps that are too heavy for a shared hosting account and applications which have specific requirements as to what the software environment on your website hosting server should be. The latter is something which cannot be achieved on a shared machine, because no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the aforementioned solutions is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, while if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings along with your web content can be managed via a graphical interface. If you pick Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll receive a server with restricted root access.
